If you enjoy films about the days of pirates and their lovely old ships as I do, then this movie is well worth viewing. It had a good story with some entertaining comedy spots. A pleasant change from... Read more all the kung fu garbage around. Great for all the family to view.
Good watch! Loads of action and adventure! Johnny Depp is always(?) good!
It's a petty the later films in the Pirates of the Carribbean didn't keep up the standard!
Plenty of elements of comedy (Jack Sparrow) and action with some drama, appeals to a large demographic
Deferentially a movie to see at least once
Extremely funny, once again Johnny Depp does very well in his character and of course, Keirra Knightley is.........HOT!!
This is the kind of movie I really enjoy, mythical events, plenty of action, and great special effects to really draw you nto the movie. I rather liked the way the story unfolded too, as it tried to... Read more keep your attention away from the real story to make it appear more interesting and intriguing. I recommend this movie as it's an entertaining ride and treat to watch.
A good watch, very good. A lot of action and plenty of adventure
Very good movie
A funny movie, more for the young ones. Just watched it cause of Johnny.
Johnny Depp is a genius - this movie just showcases another facet to his comic brilliance and dramatic nouse.
Some of the peripheral actors are ho-hum, but the main characters manage to make... Read more the plot both believable (which I find hard to believe) and entertaining.
When I first read the plot of this movie (a cursed coin made into a necklace finds its way into the hands of a genteel young girl at a tender age. It is sought by a ship full of "undead" pirates who find the young girl - now a young woman about to be married - and kidnap her. She is saved by a scarrulous roue called Captain Jack Sparrow - at times displaying mannerisms implying dubious sexual orientation - and the son of an old enemy played by Orlando Bloom in appropriate style. Pirates, ghosts, curses, good bad-guys and bad good-guys, damsels in distress and pretty boys coming of age) my first thought was "gag me".
However, the movie is both entertaining, surprisingly funny and very well done (considering the subject matter).
All in all, a triumph in my mind. I can finally understand why it was nominated for Oscar Awards...
Great fun. Depp's brilliant portrayal of Jack Sparrow saves a film that otherwise would have been pure dreck. Although the rest of the movie is basic Disney vomit through-and-through, Depps's performance... Read more is absolute magic, and alone makes the movie worth watching.
(PS. the sequels are *terrible*! Even Depp couldn't save those from themselves. This is the only POTC movie worth seeing.)
There are not many pirate movies around and this one takes the cake with the gorgeous actors and great story and action sceens that keep you wanting more.
